A few autumn birds

First-winter Wheatear


Black Arches (from July 2010)
There were at least 9 Wheatears up on the mound this evening. Its been a good spring and autumn passage for Wheatears this year. No sign of the Pec today. Teal numbers seem up (80+). A few waders around including 2 Ruff on the enclosed beds, 4 Green Sandpiper, 1 Greenshank and 30+ Lapwing.
I found this picture of a random moth I took last year before I started mothing. It is something I havent seen this year- a Black Arches so a retrospective tick. Nice.
